Head and stomach issues...anxiety?
Hi everyone. Been dealing with some very odd symptoms since getting flu like symptoms in January.
Vertigo (spinning from eye for 2 weeks but eventually went away)
Ear Pressure and Crackling (still remains but not as constant)
Facial tightness (still remains...mostly noticeable after getting up each morning)
Random Swollen head pressure (not throbbing or sharp...feels like head is being squeezed)
Possible “acute” nerve issues (numb hands when sleeping, trigger finger on left index finger, right hand colder than left, burning feet)
In regards to the “nerve” issues, the most constant symptom is leg and feet weakness and numbness when lying flat on my back and/or stomach. Not sure why??
Heart palpitations (mostly after eating a meal, my heart pumps harder...and I get quite fatigued that I need to lay down. Never noticed this until now)
Stomach issues + Shortness of breath (one of the last symptoms developed. Random bouts of bloating and getting full quickly. Food taking longer to digest.
Nausea (not sure if it’s due to the heavy head pressure or stomach issues. Or maybe both? )
I also noticed I get more nauseous when I’m sitting upright, specifically in the car while I’m driving. Not sure if it’s due to posture or head pressure
Mucus (only time I get mucus is after I shower, and it’s from my nose and thick and white. I’ve never had thick white mucus for 3 months straight so something is definitely going on)
Excess salivation (random times where I feel like I’m over salivating and like I can taste something at the back of my throat)
I’ve seen 3 different doctors and they’ve stated everything from inner/middle ear infection to sinus issues, to migraines.
I’ve tried nasal sprays, ear drops, neilmed irrigation, etc. None seemed to help.
I used to be very active and go to the gym 3-4 times a week. Ever since getting the “flu”, I’ve been unable to run without my heart pounding and feeling that heavy head pressure.
Any idea what’s going on? I have no cough or fever...
I’m Going crazy and been stressed out for the last 3 months. Every day it’s something new.
